    I doubt there's any chance of you solving this however,

    Just downloaded .doc file of school work which was half finished, opened it up from Local/Temp from Firefox finsihed the work then saved. Closed it. Now can't find it in Temp or anywhere. My mistake.

    Any chance of getting it back?

    You opened it up from Outlook or firefox? There are hidden temporary folders that applications usually put this stuff in. You might want to check under ...documents and settings\your name\application data and look for microsoft and then Outlook for the temp file for Outlook and try the firefox folder for firefox. I have not opened a file within firefox before and as such cannot tell you where it puts the temporary files. You could also do a windows search for some of the text within the document and see if you can find it from there as well. Windows Key+F brings up the windows search window.
